Dead GPU

My Sapphire Radeon 4850 x2 2GB gpu died on me last night. I went to the Sapphire web site and I'm still within the two year warranty but it says to go through the initial place of purchase. So I went to the NewEgg web site and they have a 30 day warranty policy. It looks like all of their RMA info i...

Re: MMA History

That was a pretty cool move but how was it even remotely like a superman punch? The WEC mixing with UFC is a pretty cool deal. You're right, the little guys are scrappy!

Re: MMA vs Boxing Answered

Totally agree. Remember when if you mounted someone the fight was over? Then there were the submissions that no one could defend for a while like the rear naked choke, guillotine, and arm bar. It has been fun to watch the sport evolve from the first UFC until now. I do miss PRIDE though!

Re: MMA vs Boxing Answered

It's a stupid debate. They aren't the same sport! Dana White said on ESPN that he was praying that Toney didn't land a lucky punch and knock Couture out because than he'd have to have this lame debate perpetuated. The odds were -600 in Couture's favor for the fight.

Re: Wireless adapter advice

I use a Rosewill USB adapter that works great and it's only 25 bucks. The only drawback is that it puts out some heat so your ambient temp. has to be reasonable. Here's the Newegg link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007697%2050002177&IsNodeId=1&name=Rosewill If you b...

Re: What is worse inflation or deflation?

Back in the 80s interest rates skyrocketed to about 20%. This was done in order to impose deflation of the currency. It's an extreme measure as it hurts badly in the present but it is effective in the long run. The U.K. is seriously thinking about swallowing this bitter pill to get their economy rig...

Re: GOLFERS - Joke of the Day

A woman on the golf course runs up to the golf pro and says, "I've just been stung by a bee what do I do?"
The golf pro asks, "Well where were you stung?"
The woman replies, "Between the first and second hole!"
To which the golf pro responds, "Well first off your stance is too wide..."

Re: PC Rebooting

Microsoft got tired of hearing people complain about the Blue Screen of Death so they put in a nifty feature called "automatic restart" which will, go figure, automaticly restart your computer instead of showing you the BSoD. The problem is that when your computer is fubar it can get stuck in a loop...

Re: Machida vs Shogun 2

Vegas odds for this were Machida -185 and Shogun +170. Pretty good odds for Shogun considering how close the last fight was.

Maybe everyone finally wised up and got the real scoop at THEFLUTRUTH.COM! :snakeman: Or... typical reactionary government, they waste tons of our money when if it had been a real emergency by the time they acted if it would have been too late anyway.

Re: Radioactive Semi Load on Interstate 70 in St. Louis

Any major hospitals up your way? It could be the radioactive isotopes they use in testing. While being very radioactive they have short half lives so while they require some security it's not like Doc can use it in his Delorian. You could very well be right about hospitals. There are a ton of major...

I think it will. The media is reporting on an earlier version of the bill. The bill that passed was taken almost verbatim from the Federal immigration law which has successfully withstood court challenges with the only difference being that it can be enforced by local law enforcement.

Re: What's the go with Nvidia merchandise?

I don't see any reason to go with nVidia right now. AMD gives you much more bang for the buck, they've been consistent in their driver updates and they seem to be maintaining a steeper technological advancement tangent. Never would have guessed it a few years ago.
